Some more awards

Thank you so much for my awards guys. Doreen and San each gave me this:

I am going to forward this award to Liberty Biberty for her adorable and original work, as well as her home decorating.

Also, I will send it to Linda for her beautiful work, and for creating a little bit of France in Australia! Good to see I am not alone here.

In regard to my mini house, I must admit I have been a little lazy of late. Just can't seem to get into it. The fires haven't helped, I am very tired and have been trying to get ready for our France holiday. Not getting very far. I will try to get something done this week so that I have something interesting to show you.

I apologise for the sombre tone, but I just wanted to let people know that we have had the worst bush fires here in Victoria since European settlement. Entire towns have burnt to the ground, including a beautiful little place called Marysville, home of the amazing Bruno's sculpture garden.

At this point, after 2 days, there are 65 confirmed dead and approximately 700 homes lost. This is likely to rise significantly higher, as at this stage, many burnt areas are still inaccessible. There are also a number with severe burns in hospital.

I send all my love and best wishes to those who have lost their loved ones, their homes and livelihoods, and those who are doing all that they can to help fight the fires (including my partner). I am not a religious person, but I ask all those that are to keep these people in their prayers. And please keep your fingers crossed for favourable weather conditions.
